Hello!
My name is Melinda. I was born in Canada but Japan has been my second home for over 30 years. Let me introduce you to the wonderful sights of my second home, Kagoshima. I love exploring and adventure and want to share my knowledge with you. As an official member of Introduce Kagoshima to the World my weekends are often spent taking tours, eating delicious food and making new friends. I also organized kimono events several times a year at historical sites which include lunch. I love outdoor activities such as snorkeling, hiking and especially riding my Harley. Come and join me on my next adventure.
